“Beautiful Art”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

I visited the Prado on a Wednesday night when entrance was free, and enjoyed wandering around for an hour or so. The museum is large, and I'm sure I could've spent many days there. I did not use a guide, but I enjoyed occasionally listening in on explanations from other guides with groups.

“Incredible, we spent all day!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

Velasquez, Goya, El Greco and so much more. I have wanted to visit for years and it did not disappoint. I picked up their plan and visited a series of masterpieces they picked out, it was the only way for me to break up this monumentally huge collection,particularly because we came to madrid without a guidebook

What a great day, broken up with cups of tea in the cafe! Highly recommended to any art lover and free after 6pm!

“Great collection”

This museum is pretty big and has a very nice collection. We managed to get there on an afternoon with free admission, so you can't beat that!
